Big Brother: Italian Shopping Task

big brother eye 2009

This week, the housemates will be experiencing all things Italian, embracing the culture, the food, the fashion and the music.

Gelato – Dogface and Sree

As Italy is famed for its delicious desserts, Big Brother will require two housemates to run a 24-hour ‘Gelato’ ice-cream stand. Big Brother will place ice-cream orders throughout the duration of the task, via the ice cream phone which will ring with the tune “O Sole Mio” which housemates will need to complete and deliver to the Diary Room within a specified period of time in order to pass the task.

The Three Tenors- Halfwit, Karly and Rodrigo

Three housemates will need to brush up on their vocal skills and attempt to recreate the famous Three Tenors version of Giacomo Puccini’s Nessun Dorma from the opera Turandot.

Fashionistas – Siavash

As Milan is one of the worlds leading fashion capitals, one Housemate will become Big Brother’s resident Fashionista and keep “On Trend” to Big Brothers standard at all times. In order to pass the task, the Fashionista will be required to rapidly change their outfit whenever Big Brother deems them to be “so last hour”. The Fashionista must also take part in a trigger task- every time they hear the song “Vogue by Madonna’, they must strike a pose and hold it until the music stops.

Footballers- Charlie and Kris
Football Journalist – Lisa

For this part of the Task, 2 Housemates will become football players, and one will become a Sports Reporter. They must take part in three tasks. The footballers will have to take part in a trigger Tatk- every time they hear the Trigger GOALAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZIO they must give a demonstration of the passion and drama Italian Footballers are so well known for.

The Football Journalist must then learn the art of predicting Football Scores. They will be provided with an MP3 player with Mike Bovill announcing a list of football scores, they must familiarise themselves and learn the intonation, ready for when they are called into the Diary Room where Mike Bovill will be in person who will then reel of football scores which the reporter must complete. i.e. “Italy 7, Cameroon 0”- it’s all in the intonation!

Marcus and Noirin will become artists and will be given their task tomorrow.

Lisa McGarry

Lisa has been watching reality TV for too long now. She won't do any housework unless 'Big Brother' announces it over the tannoy and everything she does has to be put to a public vote!
